Anonymous hacker group attacks Israeli websites..leaks personal information of 5,000 Israeli officials

http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/technology-20356757

Hacking group Anonymous has launched a series of cyber attacks against websites in Israel.

Data bombardments briefly knocked some sites offline and led to others being defaced with pro-Palestinian messages.

The OpIsrael campaign was launched by the hacking collective in retaliation for attacks on Gaza.

The cyber attacks come as the Israeli army updates its web campaign adding “achievements” and “badges” for regular visitors.

Anonymous said it had launched the OpIsrael campaign following threats by the Israeli government to cut all Gaza’s telecommunication links. This, said the group in a statement posted to the AnonRelations website, “crossed a line in the sand”.

“We are ANONYMOUS and NO ONE shuts down the Internet on our watch,” it said.

The group warned the Israeli government not to cut off telecom and web links and urged it to end military operations in Gaza. If the attacks did not end, Israel would feel the group’s “full and unbridled wrath”.

Hours after the statement was launched, Anonymous posted a list of 87 sites it claimed had been defaced or attacked as part of OpIsrael. Many of the sites had their homepages replaced with messages in support of Hamas and the Palestinians.

Anonymous also produced a package of information for people in Gaza detailing alternative ways for them to communicate if net and other telecommunication links were cut.

Internet hacktivist group Anonymous has declared cyberwar on Israel, posting personal data of five thousand Israeli officials online.
The group used their Anonpaste.me site to address a message to the Israeli government before linking to the page with names, ID numbers and personal emails of 5,000 officials.
The message said: “It has come to our attention that the Israeli government has ignored repeated warnings about the abuse of human rights, shutting down the internet in Israel and mistreating its own citizens and those of its neighboring countries.”

  1. this is a cyber war. it’s easy to speak , but hard to do.why u tell us what we must do,why u don’t go out and protest … cause i’ll be shut in the head in one minut.we don’t use guns,we use our intelligence .100,000 minds from all world are more powerful when all guns. we fight against governments and corruption ,not against people of israel or palestin or another country …
    our biggest enemy for every people from all countries are the governments …
    we are slaves of capitalism . we are legally slaves .
    governments were used us , fooled us , were was a crises with afro-american slaves and to not stay with out slaves ,government made a biggest move – everybody must be slave and now ,all of us are slave of economy.
    we are working to pay bills, wea re working to pay for water,light,heat ( all of this are natural power or natural products), we are paying for what we are Not consuming …
    we are paying paying paying
    we have one income and hundreds outcome
    the laws are made to protect governments ,but people who will protect …. where are our rights , are freedom of choice , we were born free
    why i cann’t choose what is good for me and what is wrong
    why government must tell me what i must to do , to drink ,to eat, to study, to buy or sell, or what to say , where to go, in what believe ,who to be , etc….
    i was born free and you were born free ,and we must be free to choose

    we must fight for our freedom
    we must put the end of capitalism
    if the end of the world will no come,
    the end of capitalism will come

    • dude, you’re confused.

      there is no capitalism. it’s just a fantasy idea. we have not moved away from feudalism in the least.

      you aren’t against the people of israel? too bad. thanks for cyberattacking them anyways.

    • nice words and i respect your position and your thoughts (but please note anonymous have taken sides here)..please tell me what you are replacing capitalism with? socialistic capitalism? what fills the void?
